CR restaurant owner to open new venue in former Rock Top location

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A Cedar Rapids businessman plans to open a new restaurant this spring where another one just closed.

Richard Pankey, who owns the Riley's and Butcher Block restaurants, will open the restaurant where Rock Top was on Blairs Ferry Road North East.

He says the menu will be different than the Rock Top's.

Rock Top featured classic pub food, and suddenly closed January 6 -- just four months after opening.
